Greenpeace flagship sails into Dubrovnik

By  Jul 15, 2017

The Greenpeace ship Rainbow Warrior III was spotted sailing into Dubrovnik today. The ship, which was christened on October the 14th 2011, has been sailing in the Croatian Adriatic for the past few days highlighting the problem of plastic waste contamination in the sea.

In particular the organisation has pointed out the problem that the Dalmatian islands have with plastic waste, especially the island of Mljet. The vast majority of this plastic waste is brought to Croatian shores from Albania and Montenegro by currents.

The Rainbow Warrior III is designed to be one of the "greenest" ships afloat, and to showcase this quality, it runs primarily using wind power, with a 55 m mast system which carries 1255 sq meters of sail and is backed up by a "state-of-the-art hybrid".
